MADISON, Wis. - The Wisconsin women's tennis team turned the page on its fall season after a productive weekend at two ITA regional events. While some of the team competed at the ITA Midwest Regional in Champaign, Ill., the rest spent their weekend at the alternate regional in Rockford, Ill.

Chypyha didn't fare as well, as she lost her first-round singles match to Nida Hamilton of NU, 6-2, 6-1. The two paired up for doubles, where they lost to Milwaukee's pairing of Soule and Colarossi, 8-4, in the first round.
The Badgers were also represented in the alternate regional in Rockford, Ill. Pernilla Wohlstrom headlined the weekend for the Rockford group, posting a fourth-place finish in the Charlie singles division.

Helen Rabot earned a fifth-place finish in the Alpha singles division. After dropping her first match to Maggie Remynse of WMU, 6-1, 6-1, Rabot bounced back to drop NIU's Maira Rozo, 7-5, 6-2. She put the finishing touches on her weekend with a victory over Michaela Silesova of Michigan State, 6-4, 6-2.
